Note that you will need to install the Sony Media Go software onto your laptop to easily transfer songs to the Walkman unit. This review is for the 4 GB product which stores a good many songs but not a large collection. One last tip - even thought it sounds counter intuitive, I found that keeping the wire strap OUTSIDE my swim cap helped immensely. Happy swimming !!
I purchased 2 separate pairs of these headphones for swimming. The first pair I got was so quiet, I couldn't make out the words of the music I was listening to. I Googled this problem and found that it is a very common complaint. There is a Sony knowledge base article with instructions on how to disable a feature called AVLS, which is supposed to limit the volume to prevent hearing loss. After making sure this feature was disabled, the volume of music was still too low to be considered usable. I returned the first pair, but I was not able to find another solution as elegant as this product, so I bought them again, hoping that the first one was just defective. The second pair I got had the same exact problem. I am returning them too. These are a massive disappointment and I really wanted to like them, but I wouldn't recommend these to my worst enemy. I am a long time Sony fan and I use a pair of high-end Sony headphones at work 5 days a week. I expected better from them.
I ended up buying the Aerb waterproof MP3 player and I have been happy with it.
I am a very intense water aerobic/aqua fitness user. I jump and bounce around a lot. The player stayed in place on my head and the ear pieces never popped out. With the no wires design it is perfect because there are no wires to get tangled up and then pull on the buds. I use the water ear buds and at full volume which is perfect. I can hear the music and drown out my splashing and other people in the pool. I am telling you this because I cannot tell you how they will work swimming or under water. They are perfect for my water workout routine.
Also, I took the time to create 45-60 minute high/moderate BPM music play lists, and then 10-15 minute more mellow/cool down play lists. I named with a number such as 1, 2, 3, and so on as the first character in the name that way I could sequence them with a workout, then cool down play list. Then I just use the next/previous buttons to scan through my play lists more easily.
